I hate to actually answer with anything that is semi-relevant to the thread, but I am going to do it anyway.  The Browns can use the help.  They can also use Pryor to placate the fanbase, most of whom are ardent OSU fans.  Most of all, I am impressed with Pryor.  Our hatred of him aside, he has subjugated his ego to try and stay in the league.  That, at least, puts him one step above Tim Tebow.  

Imagine what would happen if Tebow had ignored the media slurp-fest before it turned into a media laugh-fest.  Imagine if Tebow had done what Pryor has and simply said: "I'll do whatever it takes to play.  I'll play whatever position you need me to play."

I am convinced that Tebow would have been an all-NFL TE if he had done that.  Now he's just some guy who is in the news more for being intentionally celibate than he is for anything he was able to accomplish in the NFL. 

Just think: Pryor is smarter and more humble than Tim Tebow.  Would any of us have thought that when they were in school?

It's been around for 20 years now. Has nothing to do with gender, either. I use it (31 year old male), although I kind of hate when I use it too often or if I use it when something's really not that funny. However, it's almost an important part of casual digital communication these days. Using it helps give a sense of the tone of the conversation, something that's hard to infer at times when texting/chatting and not being able to see the other person. Almost like a digital body language, if that makes sense.

You mean like the player most like him we had - Devin Gardner -  tried?

Yes what an outrage.

Wow Pryor is ancient history - let it go man.

/does anyone have some Troy Smith and Maurice Clarett updates?

He offered up better pictures of what he had with him when he was arrested to help out Michigan fans who were dealing with displacement issues.

He has embraced the mistakes he made, has been, to this point, a great example of the ability of a person to reform himself. As you said he has been going to various schools and other groupd to try to get through to players the mistakes he made and how to take responsibility for yourself.

ESPN story if you are interested, they went to two talks he gave at Alabama and FSU this summer. http://espn.go.com/ncf/story/_/id/13509897/how-former-ohio-state-buckey…

It's usually rude to wish someone would "just die already," but it's OK in the case of T. Pryor. After all, he of all people knows that everybody robs people, kills people, steals from you, steals from me.

 

Therefore, I wish Pryor would just die already...

And I dont give two shits about this. Not like TP is going lift the team to greatness or anything.

The funny thing is we have exactly ONE winnable game left on the schedule and it's in two weeks.  Against San Fransisco.

They are the only team in the league with worse coaching than us.

In the NFL unless you have your QB you have nothing.  And we dont have our QB yet.  Look at the Raiders this year.  ONE decent draft (Mack & Carr) and they're instantly respectable.

Now the thought of the Browns getting ONE draft right is pretty far-tetched I know.
